Beautiful Day to go Sailing
We thoroughly enjoyed our sail around Baltimore Harbor. Captain Tom shared with us the nautical history of the Bay as we sailed. He also shared some current news about various businesses around the Harbor. The weather was perfect for sailing. I definitely recommend Captain Tom!

Set Sail for a date
We had a fabulous time on the sailboat, with a perfect calm weather morning! I scheduled the sailing tour to celebrate my birthday in Baltimore. Captain Tom & Lindsey were very friendly. We kept a steady pace, and heard interesting history about the places we sailed by! It was the perfect length trip, and just so relaxing.

Perfect spring morning
We had an amazing morning with Captain Tom. I thought it would be the perfect way to spend a lovely morning on the water with out of town family, but ended up loving it for myself! I’ve lived in Baltimore 23 years and still learned something new from the captain’s informative historical narrative. Captain Tom was professional, engaging, and an easygoing expert of his craft. I highly, highly recommend this tour for families.

Excellent narration by Nick and Captain Amanda. We live in MD and enjoyed getting out in the water to see/hear about past/present in Baltimore’s HUGE harbor. Everything was Covid compliant which was very reassuring.

The narrative was very good. The tour of the harbor was great. As a long time Baltimore resident, I even learned a few things about the harbor. I wish we had gone to Canton and sen Fort McHenry and the port and the Bay.

Summer Breeze On The Summer Wind
Jun 2020
I was in Baltimore shortly after the first wave of the pandemic was ending. I was curious about what was available for activities. Turns out this place was just opening back up and we happy to do a tour with me.
Captain Amanda and Nick were wonderful. Since this was their first go round since COVID, there were some safety protocols to go over, then it was off to sailing.
I opted for the history tour since I can't really think of a better way to explore the history of Baltimore than sailing. Of course, it's weather dependent, but for our day, it was perfect.
They were both really knowlegable on the history and kept it very entertaining and well paced. Since it was me and a friend, it was a very catered, personal experience.
I would very highly suggest a trip with these guys. Personally, I'm looking forward to the evening wine and cheer sail next time.

Wonderful time with Angela and Nick. Although we lived in Baltimore for years, still learned so much about the Harbor area. Also picked up valuable info on sloths.
